Course Summary:
**Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally.** **English Language** Language has a profound influence on our way of thinking, seeing and interpreting the world around us. It is a persuasive tool and is used as an instrument of power by governments and large organisations. Our English Language degree **examines a wide variety of versions of English and their social, cultural and historical contexts**. It has been specially designed with a focus on the role of language in society and to give you an overview of the historical development of English. You also explore the international role of English as a global phenomenon. With its emphasis on real language in use, the degree examines the relationship between language and society through the **analysis of contemporary materials** such as news texts. We pride ourselves on offering a **challenging and stimulating degree with a wide range of innovative teaching** and assessment methods. You will be **taught by academics who are actively engaged in research** and have published in their specialist fields. We provide you with a supportive and collegial environment that helps you to reach your full potential. With a strong commitment to small-group teaching and the personal development of all of our students, we strive to support you in the pursuit of academic excellence. **Popular Music** What do we mean when we both study and play popular music? What exactly are we talking about when we consider the 21st century popular music industries? Our Popular Music degree **enables you to appreciate the dynamic relationship between the rapidly changing practices** involved with the creation, performance and marketing of popular music and its theoretical, methodological, professional/industrial, ethical and social contexts. This degree offers a **unique integrated three-strand approach** - 'performing', 'studying', and 'the business of' - to create not only an opportunity to play popular music at a professional level, but also to consider the study of popular music as a text-based discourse. By studying this degree, you will gain the ability to perform and/or compose at a professional level and to apply stagecraft and technological excellence in a practical manner. You will also **gain an understanding of the key developments relevant to the study of popular music** industries of the 21st century, at both national and international levels. Popular music is **one of the UK's largest industries** and in recent years has experienced enforced reinvention as new media forms have changed not only sounds, but also the industrial process of popular music. Our Popular Music degree utilises a research-led teaching approach underpinned by both academic and industry-facing skills. It will provide you with personal and academic development, alongside work and performance-based experience, to ensure you graduate with the skills and knowledge base highly valued by employers.

The LIMF, Africa Oye and Brazilica are highlights of the year, three amazing festivals with sensational music, food, and parties, and if you can get into Berry & Rye, you’ll have the best cocktails ever.
